3 Simple Tips To Protect Your Signage From The Harsh Winter Weather

The winter weather can take a huge toll on your outdoor lighting and signage due to winds and excessive moisture and can greatly shorten their lifespan. The good news? With the right steps, you can protect your signage and ensure it stays in excellent condition throughout the winter season.

Here are some steps you should take:

1. Invest in the Right Hardware

When you are installing your LED lighting for an outdoor signage, make sure to opt for the full outdoor hardware. This is important because outdoor-rated hardware can withstand all the elements of winter that may damage your signage, such as:

  • Excessive moisture from snow and rain
  • Extreme cold
  • Temperature fluctuations

Always Get Your Outdoor Signage Installed By A Professional Lighting Expert

Having your signage installed by a professional with the right expertise and equipment will greatly lower the risk of failure during the winter months.

2. Monitor Your Signage

It’s extremely important to monitor your sign’s sensors on a regular basis to protect it from damage. At FML, our team provides an affordable and convenient lighting maintenance program to help ensure all your signage needs are taken care of. Our team will ensure that:

  • Your sign stays bright
  • Your lighting is working at peak efficiency
  • Your lighting costs stay affordable
  • The quality of your business is reflected in the quality of your signage



3. Consider Building a Weather Resistant Enclosure

When you are installing your signage, talk to your lighting expert about building a weather resistant enclosure to keep your lights and signage protected from harsh weather. A lighting expert can help you build an enclosure that:

  • Is well sealed to keep any moisture from reaching your hardware
  • Is weather resistant so it won’t wear out
  • Has proper ventilation for air and heat transfer
  • Has cables which are routed in a correct way to prevent moisture from entering

While investing in such measures may come with slighting higher costs initially, it is an excellent investment because it will protect the lifespan of your signage and save you a lot of time and money in the long run.
